[GnomeMeeting-devel-list] OSS Audio Gone Again

Hi Damian,

Just a quick note to let you know that GM CVS can't open /dev/dsp and 
/dev/mixer again. I'm not sure when it happened or why. I was checking
it a few minutes ago and discovered it.

When it failed in the druid I ran lsof /dev/dsp and it came back empty.

I know that this is not an OSS versus Alsa problem because 0.98.5 still
works every time, all the time. I have had it up for weeks before I 
upgraded, and was using OSS and not quicknet while in a call because
of the problems I was having with quicknet.

Since when this happens, I can run GM CVS from root ok without the 
problem, I would agree that it sounds like a permission problem. But 
that doesn't explain why GM CVS can open the dsp and mixer devices at 
times. Or why 0.98.5 or any other program that I have that uses the 
dsp and mixer devices have no trouble.

I will re-install 0.98.5 and stress it really well. I'll let you know 
what I find.
